Lavender Apple Pie

Apple pie.  Does the smell, taste or mere thought of a slice of freshly baked apple pie conjure up warm memories?  Let's add a flavor twist to that memory.  Lavender Apple Pie.  Have you ever enjoyed a slice of freshly baked Lavender Apple Pie?  If not, you are missing out on a truly distinctive taste experience.

Lavender and apples pair beautifully together and bringing the two together in a pie is about the easiest thing ever.

Step 1 - Prepare your favorite* Apple Pie recipe.  Add 2 teaspoons of lightly ground Organic Culinary Lavender to the filling.  As lavender is still a less familiar taste to our modern palate, you might find you prefer a little less or a little more than 2 tsp.  Experimentation is encouraged!  Finish pie as per recipe.

Step 2 - Enjoy!

*If you don't have a favorite Apple Pie recipe thousands of people have shared their favorites online.  A simple search for "Apple Pie Recipe" will provide you with a myriad of options.

For a decadent dessert service, gently warm the pie and serve immediately with a scoop of your favorite vanilla ice cream (dairy-based or non-dairy).  Be sure to include a fork and a spoon!

If there is any leftover (as unlikely as that may be!), indulge in a slice for breakfast.  Gently warmed with a couple scoops of plain or vanilla yogurt and a dash of cinnamon, this is wonderful way to start any day.
